& # 39; We are both very busy, so it is just not the same as before & # 39 ;, he told the newspaper.

The pair first earlier this week led to split rumors, after it was discovered that Ryan had unleashed Ian on Instagram.

Ian is still following Ryan on Instagram, but they both chose not to speculate about their relationship.

After Ryan shared a picture of himself with another man on Thursday, one of his followers asked: & # 39; Did you play it out with Ian Thorpe? & # 39; It was significant that the skin care entrepreneur did not respond.

The couple started dating in early 2015, but Ian hadn't shared a photo of Ryan on Instagram since January 3, when they were on vacation in St. Barts.

Likewise, since January 21, Ryan has not shared a photo of Ian with his Instagram.

Ian confirmed that they are in the early stages of aging after Ryan was photographed at a reproduction clinic in Beverly Hills.

& # 39; We've been talking about it for a while, but it's still early, & # 39; Ian said then. & # 39; We decided to visit the clinic in LA – it is all part of the plan in this phase. & # 39;

Ian, Australia's most decorated Olympian with five gold medals under his belt, had previously spoken of his desire to start a family of his own.

In the same way, Ryan was also enthusiastic about the prospect of surrogacy.

& # 39; Becoming a parent is something that Ian and I want to make happen & # 39 ;, said aspiring lawyer Ryan at the time.

& # 39; Unfortunately, the laws in Australia are difficult for same-sex men with regard to surrogacy. California's state law has really improved in this area, making it the best option legally, & Ryan added.

& # 39; It is something that I would like to see further in Australia, so that same-sex couples do not have to travel abroad to achieve their family goals. & # 39;

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ian & # 39; s representatives for comments.
